Thinking Of A Doing A Dermaplaning Course?

Many estheticians are getting certified on dermaplaning and for good reason too. Everyone knows that dermaplaning is becoming a hot course in the beauty industry. Though the procedure seems a bit scary but in the right hands there is absolutely nothing to worry about. If you are planning on doing a dermaplaning course, there are just a few things you need to know about it.

What to expect?

Dermaplaning is painless; its sensation should feel as soothing as shaving. On the part of the professional, this requires skill and technique.  The blade should be held at an angle of 45 degrees while slowly and uniformly scraping off dead skin cells as well as little tufts of facial hair. The whole procedure can take as long as 30 minutes, although this depends on the esthetician.

The cost for emplaning procedure can range from $100 to $200, depending on region, brand popularity and other factors.

Are there any side effects to dermaplaning?

This is the best part, there is absolutely no side effect… none has been reported anyway, although the skin should be well moisturized after this procedure.  This treatment will leave your skin soft, smooth, and vulnerable for the first few days. Extreme sensitivity to sunlight can be expected as well so a sun screen containing SPF-30 is recommended for extra sensitive skin.

Dermaplaning treatment can be repeated 21 days after the last treatment if the client wishes to, but no less than 21 days. Consult a dermatologist first if you feel you have a valid reason.


Dermaplaning is a very sensitive procedure and should only be carried out by a certified dermatologist with the relevant certification. There are several institutional bodies that offer courses on cosmetology and relevant tests for certification. Get licensed and take your esthetics career to the next level.
